Here we are at another day of Aussie Slang, so here we go.........


Rip Snorter: Bloody fantastic or great


Road Trains: Large truck with many trailers


Ropeable: Very angry


Root: To have sex


Rooted: Something is stuffed up as in broken, doesn't work

or to be worn out or exhausted

  3. Americans apparently use "root" in another context altogether, so in my IRC channel, I was fairly upset when they appeared to be very rude. My mistake 😔

  4. Interesting slang today, Jo-Anne. Had no idea about the use of the word "root."
    Blessings!
